Watch on LabRoots at: http://labroots.com/user/webinars/det... I will describe recent advances in computational protein design which allow the generation of new protein structures and functions. I will describe the use of these methods to design ultra-stable idealized proteins, flu neutralizing proteins, high affinity ligand binding proteins, and self assembling protein nanomaterials. I will discuss possible applications to therapeutics, vaccines and diagnostics. I will also describe the contributions of the general public to these efforts through the distributed computing project Rosetta@home and the online protein folding and design game FoldIt.
